Viking Pagan Gods in Britain
March 8 @ 20:00 - 21:00 GMT
A lecture by Professor Ronald Hutton
The Norse and Danish invaders – commonly called Vikings – who occupied Britain in the ninth and tenth centuries, brought with them their own pagan gods. Odin, Thor, Tyr, Loki and Freya left their trace on the British landscape, in the form of scenes from their mythology carved on stone slabs, and Viking paganism has a further considerable legacy of material evidence in richly furnished graves, especially on the Isle of Man.
